C'mon, ladies. As pro choice as we may be, there has to be a point where we concede that, yeah, maybe it's not just a fetus any more. If it's healthy, then there has to be a point where we say it's not OK any more.

I was pregnant with a little girl last year. A about 26 weeks, it was discovered that I had placenta percreta. Basically the placenta was growing into the uterine wall, specifically a c-section scar from having my son. This is really dangerous and can kill the mother. There was no way I could carry her any longer. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever consider aborting her. She was delivered by c-section. She did not survive and only lived a few hours, but THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR DECISION TO DELIVER HER. She had a heart defect doctors didn't know about. She would most likely not have survived even if she went full-term. It was heart wrenching for sure, but how does someone just abort at that point?

I'm not against abortion. I had one when I was in college. I'm also an RN. No way do I think a healthy 30 week fetus should be terminated. No way.

My reading comp is fine, thanks. You're making it sound like having a baby prematurely is no big deal. As someone who's been a NICU nurse, lemme tell ya, even a couple weeks early can be a big fucking deal. Just because hypothetically a woman CAN deliver early, doesn't mean that it's what's best for her. What if the mother can't handle the stress of having a premature baby? If she can't handle the medical bills? If she can't handle knowing that her baby still might not survive after all of the above? It's about what is best for the person who is pregnant and allowing them and their medical team the chance to do what's right for that specific woman. Someone asked about it being right or wrong, and there is no right or wrong.

In response to a confession. Nobody is saying carry the baby to term. Nobody is even saying carry the baby for one more day. But a baby at 30 weeks needs to be delivered like a full-term baby. C-section or vaginal delivery. Even a fetus that dies naturally in the womb needs to be delivered that way. A 30 week fetus has a 90% survival rate. But you would rather terminate an otherwise healthy, 30 week old fetus than just deliver it? Why? Just delivering it is not putting your health in any greater risk because you are not carrying it for any longer than you would if you terminated.

In response to a confession. I realize that they would rather deliver the baby at 30 weeks and it will probably be OK. But according to the ob/gyn (and abortion provider including late-term, so not someone against abortion), the mother can choose to terminate rather than just deliver. I am all for abortion rights, but that's not OK in my book.

In response to a confession. I completely understand terminating a pregnancy that endangers your life. But you would seriously choose to terminate a pregnancy at 30 weeks rather than just deliver the baby at 30 weeks? Delivering the baby is not putting your life in any more risk at that point than terminating the pregnancy would. You're not going to be pregnant one minute more than you would terminating it. A 30 week old fetus requires an actual delivery whether the fetus is alive or not.

No one should ever have a say in what a woman does with her body. Abortion laws were created to control women and treat them as lesser humans. If men could get pregnant, it wouldn't even be an issue.

In response to a confession. Depends on the severity of the condition. You describe it as severe. If carrying to term meant that I'd be sacrificing my health, so I couldn't take care of my existing kids, I'd abort. Just because you'd choose differently doesn't mean my decision is "wrong." I would do what is best for my family. Everyone is different.

Apparently there’s a lack of reading comprehension. If the baby is OK at 30 weeks but the mom has preeclampsia they would deliver the baby and it would probably make it in an infant ICU situation. The law protects doctors who have difficult cases where a baby is in utero causing problems and wont likely make it. Most of the time after 24 weeks they can save an otherwise healthy preemie.
